“Play me some mountain music” question?


by Frolic

Question by xbCx BeAsT: “Play me some mountain music” question?
Why in this song do they talk about mountain music, and then a cajun hide away? Cajuns are mainly from Louisiana, which as everyone knows, is no where near any mountains? I wonder if anyone else has been stumped by this, let me know what you think.

Best answer:

Answer by Rob
“Oh, play me some mountain music,
Like grandma and grandpa used to play.
Then I’ll float on down the river
To a Cajun hideaway”

I think he wants to hear the mountain music his grandparents played, then float
down the river (I’m guessing the Mississippi or one of its hundreds of tributaries)
like Tom Sawyer & Huck Finn to Louisiana. There are several smaller rivers that
travel down from the mountains of Tennessee and eventually empty into the
Mississippi River.

The Magic of Orlando Extends Beyond Disneyworld

Orlando, Florida, is a popular choice for parents who want to take their kids on a short break this April. After all, Disneyworld – the world’s favourite children’s theme park – is located there and thus provides an excellent place to let your children run amok! However, next time you’re in Orlando for some family fun, try and look beyond Disneyworld as April in Orlando could hold some very interesting surprises!

One of the most high profile events in Orlando’s April Calendar is the Central Florida Fair. Running since 1912, the Central Florida Fair offers food, exhibits, music, rides and entertainment for the entire family – so if Mickey ever gets a little too much, your kids will get to enjoy something non-Disney related in Orlando. The 2007 Central Florida Fair boasts a variety of attractions, including Kenya Safari Acrobats, the Sunburst Beauty Pageant & Baby Contest (open to girls and women aged 4 to 27 years) and the Frisco Brothers Exotic Annual Exhibit & Show, which is back for a remarkable eighth year running.

If you’re looking for some active fun in Orlando this spring, why not take your kids down to the Soap Box Derby Rally. Whether you’re a first time driver or an experienced soap box racer, make sure you seize this chance! Race cars will be available to drivers at the rally free of charge; and each driver will be able to make several test runs down the track to see if the Soap Box Derby Rally floats your boat. And since the Soap Box Derby Rally is restricted to drivers aged 7 to 16, you know your kids will be safe and have fun with other children their own age.

Finally, one of Orlando’s most exciting festivals held in April is the Rajuncajun Crawfish Festival. This exciting festival has been an annual fixture in Orlando’s calendar since 1989 and brings the smells, sounds and tastes of the famous Louisiana Cajun Country to Florida. With sizzling Louisiana-style Cajun and Zydeco music, a relaxed atmosphere and first-class Louisiana cuisine, you and your family are sure to have a wonderful time at the Rajuncajun Crawfish festival! Whether it’s bluegrass, fiddle or classic rock music you love, the Rajuncajun Crawfish Festival will offer you all this and more, accompanied by a Cajun buffet that includes double dipped black bayou fried chicken, corn on the cob, shrimp head-on Louisiana style, red creamer potatoes and more besides.

If you’re planning on a family holiday to Orlando in April, why not opt for a hotel suite for a more cosy family accommodation experience. You’ll find plenty of hotels and hotel suites in Orlando at your disposal, so you and your family will be able to enjoy the magic of Orlando in peace and comfort – whether you choose to spend it in Disneyworld or not!

Georgia Health Insurance Helps Members of the Peach State Become More Healthy

Georgia has just been named in the top 10 for one of the unhealthiest states in the nation. Georgia is ranked No. 6 on the list following just Florida, Nevada, New Mexico, Louisiana, and Mississippi. These rankings were done judging each state on twenty-one different factors ranging from cancer rates to obesity. Georgia has recently leaped into the top ten in the past ten years, with Georgia being 24 sports higher at No. 30 less than ten years ago. Georgia has been ranked fourth in the number new AIDS cases per year, and firth for the number of sexually transmitted diseases. Just these two new statistics it’s enough to send anyone living in the Peach State packing. Besides the spread of STD’s one of the main reasons why people living in the Peach State are considered some of the most unhealthy in the country is because of an unhealthy lifestyle as well as a high-fat diet which is putting a lot of people down south at risk.

High-fat diets are known to have levels much higher than the levels advised by the American Heart Association, which can over time, cause cardiac or heart problems. Problems like there are very serious and can lead to very serious surgeries such as heart bypass surgery. For people who are going to continue to state on their high-fat diets, and even for people who don’t that live in Georgia, it is very important for them to have some type of Georgia Health Insurance. Georgia being one of the most unhealthy states in the nation gives good reason for residents to have a good Georgia Health Insurance plan especially a plan which include well-visit check ups as well as any type of testing or screening that may be important to screen for such serious ailments such as heart disease.

Here few ways that nutritionists recommend that residents of Georgia can change their lifestyle in order to become more healthy. One of the easiest ways is to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your life. Fruits and vegetables are relatively inexpensive and they are also very good for you, when purchasing fruits and vegetables remember that the darker the fruit or vegetable, the better it will be for you. This is because the darker it is the more nutrients it will hold. Also, eating raw vegetables such as tomato, or lettuce is better for you than cooking them because they will retain all of the nutrients they are grown with, opposed to cooking or frying them which may lead to decrease in amount of nutrients.

Another way that residents of Georgia can become more healthy and safe is by purchasing Georgia health insurance. There are more than 45 million people across the country with health insurance, and many of those people are located in Georgia. Having some type of Georgia Health Insurance is imperative for residents to live a happy and stress-free lifestyle.
